A smart security system makes empty properties look occupied
The goal is that your Birmingham rental property will be occupied, but that's not always the case. Nevertheless, you need to make it appear that guests are there so your place isn’t a potential target for thieves. Implementing a security system with home automation allows you to take advantage of smart lights, motion detection equipment, and video cameras that make your rental look lived-in.
Begin by setting your smart lights to come on at specific hours of the night. Then, use your security app to warn you if your cameras notice an intruder lurking in the shadows or coming to the front door. You have the opportunity to use the two-way audio feature to make them aware that they’re being watched or set your smart lights to instantly turn on when a camera or motion detector uncovers suspicious activity.
Protect your Birmingham Airbnb with 24-hour monitoring
Your renters can sleep easy if they feel protected from criminals, specifically when Birmingham is somewhat unfamiliar. If a thief tries to invade your property, your home alarm system will not only sound a siren but will also alert your 24-hour monitoring agents. Now, no matter where you are, help will be on its way. Your monitoring experts will even act as your authorized go-between and patch you in as soon as you're able.
Along with break-ins, your monitoring hub can be connected with fire alarms, water sensors, and carbon monoxide sensors. It is likely to be upsetting for your guest if a water heater springs a leak or something catches fire. You will then get a cell phone update that a potentially dangerous event has happened, but the monitoring agent will also coordinate emergency services while you're on the way.
